I've got a fairly new house (built 2000) in Mass. that has vinyl siding. For
some projects on the house, and to build a
matching shed, I'd like to see if I can find identical siding. And of course
it's not some "easy" color like white or gray.
So my question is, does anyone have any advice on how to match it up? Most
siding I've seen (haven't checked this stuff yet)
has numbers printed on the back - are they any help? Or will it have to be done
Matching dye lots that are 5 years old will be impossible. Sun and
pollution will have changed the shade of the original.
My suggestion is take some siding down and get paint to match it. Then side
the shed with "what ever" and paint to match. Best check on painting the
siding first before you use my short pier.
I just had to remove some of our vinyl (about the same age as yours) and
noticed a color stamped on the nailing flange, but didn't see a manufacturer
(but I wasn't looking closely). I'd love to have a few extra strips for
repairs, but wouldn't want to buy a whole box even if it was available
Yeah, I was thinking about doing that. But from what I've seen, most
contractors around here change subs on an hourly basis,
so I have a nasty feeling that the builder either won't know who did the
particular job, or is out of touch with that person.
